UKRAINE: COMEDIAN WINS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky has won both rounds of Ukraine’s presidential election with a huge margin, erasing President Petro Poroshenko’s chances of reelection five years after coming to power.

Zelensky, a political novice, swept to an overwhelming victory over incumbent president Petro Poroshenko.
The results is being interpreted as an emphatic rejection of the political establishment.

On Sunday, Zelensky secured more than 73 percent of ballots in the country’s runoff vote with under 25 percent of voters supporting the incumbent.

Just three weeks ago, on March 31, the political novice came on top among 39 presidential hopefuls in the first round of voting.
